Bestselling author Stasi Eldredge shows us how to choose a joy that stands against the tides of life's real and often overwhelming pain.

Defiant Joy will help you…

• get off the emotional roller coaster and experience daily joy;
• learn how to have a posture of holy defiance when circumstances threaten to weigh down your soul; and
• find new perspectives on painful circumstances and see how God sometimes interferes with your life to heal and transform you.

We are called to live. And, miraculously, to live with joy.

We all spend a lot of energy reaching for happiness, but we are never quite able to hang on to it. Real life happens, and our circumstances take us on an emotional rollercoaster ride. So the Bible’s call to “be joyful always” sounds almost crazy—and out of reach. But it doesn’t have to be.

Joy is meant to be ours, a joy that is defiant in the face of this broken world. This joy is not simply happiness on steroids; it’s the unyielding belief that sorrow and loss do not have the final say. It’s the stubborn determination to be present to whatever may come and to interpret both goodness and grief by the light of heaven.

In Defiant Joy, Stasi Eldredge invites us with courage, candor, and tender vulnerability to a place beyond sadness or happiness. She shows us how to maintain a posture of holy defiance that neither denies nor diminishes our pain but dares to live with expectant, unwavering hope.
